focused therapy is a psychological approach that was originally
developed to help people with high shame and self-criticism, and this
course will introduce you to the basic ideas and interventions that are
used. This course is for you if you are in a mental health profession,
for example psychiatry, psychology, nursing or occupational therapy and
you are trained to form and develop psychotherapeutic relationships.
Also, if you have basic counselling and cognitive behavioural therapy
skills and you would like to develop your skills when working with
clients who experience shame and self-criticism thoughts, then this
course is for you."
